Battleborn's 30th Hero Revealed, New Story DLC Released
Gearbox also details upcoming Battleborn DLC plans.
2K Games and Gearbox Software have released new story DLC for Battleborn. The add-on is called "Toby's Friendship Raid" and tasks players with recovering Toby's stolen "death-dealing mech suit."
"This all-new story operation let's players fight their way through LLC manufacturing facilities' deadly traps and enemies to earn new skins, taunts, and chances to unlock Faction Commander Packs while pursuing their mission to restore Toby's mech suit to its rightful owner," reads a press release.
Toby's Friendship Raid is available today for Season Pass owners. The story expansion can be purchased separately for 700 Platinum through the in-game marketplace when it becomes publicly available.
Along with the DLC release, Gearbox revealed Beatrix, a new playable character that will be available "in the next couple of months."
"A former scientist, Beatrix has a fondness, if not obsession with hygiene, precision and manipulating living creatures by injecting them with lethal debuffs and disease from her prosthetic syringe-arm."
Beatrix will be available in-game for 47,500 credits or can be unlocked using a hero key, which is included in the season pass. Looking ahead, Gearbox said it plans the "content to keep rolling in over the coming month." The next story mode is called "Oscar Mike Vs. Battle School," but no further details or release window were specified.
Beyond that, three more story DLCs will be released, in addition to a free competitive multiplayer mode.
On October 13, Battleborn received a big influx of new content, including its first story operation, Attikus and the Thrall Rebellion, and a new competitive mode called Face-Off. You can read about them, and other recent content additions, here.
A recent report claimed Battleborn was switching to a free-to-play business model. This may not be the case, however, though Gearbox could offer a free version.
